US and Iraqi forces killed more than 60 insurgent and militia fighters in intense battles over the weekend, with most of the casualties believed to have been al-Qaida fighters, officials said. The US Embassy, meanwhile, joined a broad swath of Iraqi politicians - both Shi'ite and Sunni - in criticizing a nonbinding US Senate resolution seen here as a recipe for splitting the country along sectarian and ethnic lines. US aircraft killed more than 20 'al-Qaida in Iraq' fighters who opened fire on an American air patrol northwest of Baghdad, the US command said Sunday. The firefight between US aircraft and the insurgent fighters occurred Saturday about 27 kilometers northwest of the capital, the military said.
